NFL Week 10 Results: Makin’ Moves

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

Week 10 of the 2013 NFL season has ended and it appears that the playoff picture is starting to clear up, though the way the Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts played this week do they really deserve to make the playoffs?

Yes of course those two teams deserve to make the playoffs if their records warrant it; that’s a stupid question, but it’s a question I saw frequently on message boards, forums, and reddit. If your record qualifies you for the playoffs, you deserve it because you won the games on your schedule. Nothing else to it, really. Whichever team actually decides to win the NFC East also deserves to be in because that team will have done what they have to do to get into the playoffs.

Fans are too emotional after losses, especially after a two game losing streak (Bengals). There are plenty of weeks left in the season to regroup and become the teams that they were earlier in the season. My message to fans (not including fans of JAX, OAK, TB, HOU, ATL, BUF, PIT, and MIN): relax, we have plenty of football to go and your team likely has a semi chance to make the playoffs.

Now let’s see if I can gain any traction on Andrew, but my gut feeling says I didn’t gain any ground – like usual.

Remember green is correct; red is incorrect. Purple is a tie (there were no ties this week, just making sure you are paying attention.)

Wow! We both called the Jacksonville Jaguars winning this week, though I am almost certain each of us predicted the Jaguars to win a game or two earlier in the year as well. And I did gain ground for once this week! Woohoo! Still I am seven games back, but gaining two games will help tremendously in this stretch run.

NFL Week 9 Results: Are Things Looking Up?

Just by quickly glancing at my predictions I believe I did a pretty good job this weekend, but my goodness have the Jets been denting my overall season record with them winning at all. That’s because I biasedly picked them to lose every game. Why did I do that? Well the signs were all there: Bad QB situation, very few offensive weapons, a coach that appeared to be on borrowed time (Rex Ryan is in the last year of his contract!), and an organization that was just trying to get through the year without anymore butt fumbles!

Nonetheless, I should apologize to the Jets organization for doubting them, but please do me a favor and don’t win another game the rest of the year, please? Thanks!

The exact same record last week! It may not be the best, but at least it’s becoming consistent and over .500 consistent at that!

Well it appears that Andrew had a bit of foresight regarding the Falcons/Panthers , because that was the only game this weekend that we did not agree on and the Falcons look abysmal (that’ll happen when you lose your Top 2 WRs, though). Which pretty much means that I have to be correct on any picks down the stretch where we disagree to even come close to winning this thing! Here is to that!
